Liege waffles, traditional Belgian gaufre.

Gaufre de Liège, ricetta tradizionale dei waffle tipici della città di Liegi.

I had a long pause from blog, once again.

I could say this is because of a busy life but the truth is I have been very lazy: no willing to stay in front of a pc.

I am back because I feel guilty, plus I am accumulating recipes and I don’t want to end with a stack of recipes, photos, things to write as I will end messing up everything.

To make this wonderful recipe, ideal for a festive breakfast, you have to buy a special sugar, called Belgian pearl sugar and you need a waffle iron.

Mine is really basic and cheap but I use it only now and then so it’s ok.

Let’s jump to the recipe, it comes from a Belgian friend of mine, I knew her by penpalling and I love her so much!

    Cover them with a slightly damp cloth and let them rest for about 15 minutes.
